Contagion Clasp Discussion

Doubling SeasonPrimal Vigor and Strionic Resonator are all going to make thing get out of control quickly in the game. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine would be good. i def. agree that Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice is a must and with green you need to take advantage of your mana ramp. how about the vivid lands they come with counters and would help fix your mana. Teferi, Temporal Archmage for card draw and for certain on his final ability, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Steadfast, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated. should be in there. i do agree with multimedia on what to take out except for kiora thats a solid planeswalker some more card draw would be good also. and some protection for atraxa like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. here is how i built mine it's not super friends but it should give you some ideas.

Nice deck... Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons is just a hoot.

I've been playing with my Hapatra deck for a while now, and have a couple suggestions for things to cut and add:

1) With all the - 1/-1 counters you have available, I haven't found board wipes like Decree of Pain or Toxic Deluge to be very useful. I'd recommend Black Sun's Zenith above each of these due to the sweet synergy.

2) I think Contagion Clasp could be cut for Serrated Arrows. The former is just too expensive for what it does, whereas the latter costs half and can be proliferated to add more arrow counters.

Regardless, nice deck!

On, another solution to the "playing stuff and have nothing else to do" is to play stuff that can do stuff by themselves. What I mean is cards like Plaguemaw Beast and Contagion Engine/Contagion Clasp that'll multiply your Snakes and -1/-1 counters.

Since you're running Crucible of Worlds, running fetchlands (for the purpose of TappedOut's suggestion feature: Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, Arid Mesa) is reasonable. They work with Sensei's Divining Top and Rings of Brighthearth, too.

Millikin seems reasonable to me, since a T3 Daretti is leagues better than a T4 Daretti.

I assume that Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle are included to deal with specific combo decks (and decks like Azami).

Bomat Courier is actually terrible. If you didn't need to discard your hand to use its activated ability, or if you didn't need to attack to exile a card under it, it might be fine. However, the combination means that this card just isn't going to do much.

Pilgrim's Eye feels pretty weak, since it doesn't ramp you and costing 3 is awkward. However, I will admit that I'm biased in this area. My Daretti list plays a lot of cheap mana rocks in order to pull off a T3 Daretti about 70-80% of the time, so I play 3-drops on curve infrequently.

Fiery Temper seems kind of sketchy to me. Yes, you can use Daretti's +2 to deal 3 damage to something, but that's pretty low impact.

I'm more than a little skeptical about Hope of Ghirapur. What exactly do you expect to accomplish with this card?

Contagion Clasp is a card I've considered, but never actually tried. How does it perform for you?

If you're going to play a card as a win condition once you go infinite, I recommend Shivan Gorge. If you have Staff of Domination + Metalworker, you can draw your deck. From there, you can cast Mycosynth Lattice, Rings of Brighthearth, and Voltaic Key, then play Shivan Gorge and use Voltaic Key + Rings of Brighthearth to repeatedly untap mountains and Shivan Gorge and ping opponents to death. Is this combo practical? Not in the slightest. However, it means you don't need to waste a card slot on a win condition. As a side note, you can produce an arbitrarily large number of Wurm tokens with your current list.

Looks like you're going for -1/-1 counters a lot. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grim Affliction, and Core Prowler would all speed things up much easier where -1/-1 counters are concerned, considering you can proliferate with them.

Great deck!

You might want to check out possibilities for adding charge counters:
Coretapper, Grindclock + Power Conduit or anything with "Proliferate" comes to mind Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine
